Hello, I’m Willoughby, licensed massage therapist and board certified Structural Integrator. I own Upright Integration, manual therapy bodywork practice. Informed from a structural integration perspective I provide therapeutic bodywork that emphasizes myofascial nerve and artery mobilization techniques. Myofascial work primarily focuses on fascia, the connective tissue that encases all the structures of the body. Nerve and artery mobilization focuses on the neurological connections between the spinal cord and the musculoskeletal system, and helps re-educate the body through the client’s active and passive participation. Structural Integration in the simplest terms seeks to improve posture by balancing one’s body in gravity. I aim to treat clients as whole individuals rather than as collections of symptoms or dysfunctions, and to bring attention to what is working for people as well as what isn’t. My ultimate goal is to empower clients to achieve wellness on their own via increased self-awareness and movement education. Indeed, my work is rooted in a belief in the transformative power of movement. I have experience working with chronic pain, repetitive stress injuries, and prenatal massage, and I bring to my practice my love of Qigong, rock climbing, and dance.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Jim on Apr 15
Willoughby did a great job. Unlike other massages ...He was gentle but firm in his touch to alleviate the tension that was in my shoulder. I have failed in not stretching afterwards but his session and understanding of the human body was interesting and helped to diminish most of the discomfort.

Willoughby is a highly skilled and intuitive practitioner. Thank you for the relief! The tendonitis in my left arm has responded very positively to treatment.

Willoughby patiently answered all of my questions and reviewed my treatment goals. He's both knowledgeable and intuitive. I would definitely recommend him as a provider!

My hips and knees were locked up and Willoughby did an amazing job opening them up, without pain and only minute touches. I'm still feeling good!

It was NOT a massage yet was marketed as one in the Groupon. Strange and kind of an awkward experience. Nice guy. Professional. Nice space. But not a massage and really didn't feel like it helped at all
